Weekly Update for St. Patrick’s School Community, May 7, 2021

May 7, 2021

Hail Mary! Full of Grace! The Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen.

Dear Families,

This weekend we celebrate the mothers in our lives. First and foremost, we celebrate our Mother in Heaven. She is the role model for women – her willingness to allow the will of God to work through her. Saying YES! to the Lord when he is asking challenging things from us. She is the epitome of grace.

We celebrate all mothers, grandmothers and important women in our lives this weekend. We are praying for each of you. Happy Mother’s Day!

As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, we will cover some important topics in our newsletter to cover the material we would have shared at the AGM. Please take a close look at the uniform changes for next year below.

I also want to inform you that Mrs. Wagg will be taking over French for the remainder of the school year. We wish Mme. Sketchley all the best.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Maria Fonseca

Uniform Changes for 2021-2022

We are excited to announce OPTIONAL additions to our gym strip for the next school year. We are adding a crew neck sweatshirt and sweatpants. Students can come to school in these pieces on PE days all year round. We will not be allowing non-uniform pieces for PE next year. Students will be able to come in their uniform and change into their gym strip, if you prefer.

We will send out a PRE-ORDER form for these pieces along with the regular uniform pieces.

Cambridge will be offering their sale prices in June.
